View of the three storey, Grade II listed Thorpe Hall on the east side of Middleton Lane. It is built in red brick with sandstone dressings and is rendered at ground floor level. The main entrance is to the right and the doorway has a moulded architrave, with scrolled consoles and pediment. The vertical, rectangular windows at ground floor level have been altered and the heads blocked. The windows beneath the carried down roof, left, were part of the servant's wing. These windows have the original glazing bars dating from 1735, when the house was built. A previous building occupied the site said to have been erected around around 1596. Thorpe Hall was the seat of the Proctor family and at one time, the Gascoignes. The Proctor Arms was originally mounted between the first and second floor windows above the main entrance and featured an otter holding a fish in its mouth.
